Today I Received another scam letter- I don't have any associates, and I never contacted this fellow,
Hoje recebi mais uma carta de um ilustre desconhecido, o qual nem sequer sei quem é, e muito menos sei a que é que ele se propõe. Mas como é mais um dos muitos esquemas que anda pela net, aqui deixo mais um, já não bastava os emails daquela velhota a dizer que vai morrer daqui a pouco tempo com um cancro no esófago, para agora me aparecer mais este.
40-42 Watney Mkt, Stepney,
London E1 2PT,
After a serious thought, I decided to reach you directly and personally because I do not have anything against you, but your partners. I am the wire transfer/telex officer of Abbey Bank, London. Sometime in the past, your partners approached me through a friend of mine who works with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) here and requested that I assist them conclude a money transfer deal that has to do with inheritance and contract payment. They gave me your personal contact and bank details and told me to put them into our computing system that it will appear that you are one of the contractors/next-of-kin that has been cleared for payment.
According to them, they wanted to use this strategy to transfer a huge amount of United States Dollars which they accumulated through inflated contract awards and the money has been floating in the financial system since the original contractors has been paid so they wanted to use your account to transfer the surplus. We agreed that once I do this, they would give me US$100,000.00 and give me another US$100,000.00 when I release the fund to your account. When they saw that I have done it and your name has been approved among the list of those to be paid, instead of giving me the agreed deposit of US$100,000.00, they started avoiding me and resorted to threats. I immediately deleted the transfer code that is only known to me because of my position, and released other contractors fund without yours.
They became angry when they saw that their threat did not work, and they started bribing other officials to get another approval to transfer the money to you without success. I want you know that I am 100% responsible for the delay and obstructions because of their breach of agreement. If you doubt what I have just told you, pay any amount they will ask you to pay now, after a short time they will come up with another reason to pay again and it goes on and on. They are simply unable to go through the right channels and procedure. Now if you want us to work together, these are my conditions.
i. I will have 30% of the money because it is only the two of us left for now.
ii. You will assist me open an account in your country or any other place of my choice where I will pay in my own share of 30%.
iii. As you can see, it will be useless and mere waste of time and money if you continue with any other person, so we will conclude this transaction with utmost secrecy with the above telephone and email only.
iv. You will provide me with your private telephone, mobile and fax numbers as well as email address to facilitate easy communication between you and I only.
If these conditions are acceptable to you, contact me as soon as possible to let us finalise so that I will fax to you our official KTT wire transfer form to complete and I will release the money to your account after due protocols has been observed. But if you are not interested, I advice you to forget the fund as it will be transferred into our consolidated national reserve.
